What are Wall Street analysts saying about Lions Gate Entertainment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lions Gate Entertainment stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Lions Gate’s acquisition of Starz is aiding its Media Networks revenues. Investments in Starz premium programming like Power, American Gods and Outlander, and its retention rate boosted domestic subscriber growth. Additionally, partnerships with the likes of Amazon, Hulu and Liberty Global to showcase Starz’s content are likely to expand its international footprint and boost global subscriber growth Further, the company’s efforts to enhance its competitive position with the help of strategic acquisitions and alliances bodes well. However, increasing investments in areas like content, marketing and partnerships are expected to hurt profitability, at least in the near term. Moreover, increasing competition from other media companies and streaming video service providers remains a headwind. Shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (1/15/2019)
  • 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We now sense a mid-teens number might be the area at which production will level off. Starz provides Lionsgate with an important opportunity to work its creative magic on a proprietary distribution channel, hoping to replicate its success for Netflix (Orange is the New Black) and AMC (Mad Men).The current intent is to debut a new 12-13 episode series each month, creating a steady flow of new content designed to entice new subscribers and maintain existing ones with several new episodes introduced each week as the series overlap counting the debut series and those from the prior two months, with all prior episodes stacked on VOD. Spending per series and episode can vary based on the target of the series in terms of attracting and retaining subscribers." (11/13/2018)
